      Whenever information needs to be transferred to Recipients outside the European Economic Area to a country which has not received the decision of adequate level of protection issued by the European Commission, personal data will be duly protected by standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission, or binding corporate rules of the data processor.

    7. Which are your rights as a data subject and how can you exercise them? The General Data Protection Regulation on data protection matters foresee that any individual can exercise the following rights before the data controller in connection with the processing of your personal data:

      Right of access: means the right to obtain access to your information that Almirall processes.

      Right to rectification: means the right to be entitled to have your information corrected if it is inaccurate or incomplete.

      Right to erasure: in simple terms, it means to request the deletion or removal of the information concerning him/her where there is no compelling reason for an organisation to keep using it. This right is also known as “the right to be forgotten” and is not a general right to erasure; there are exceptions.

      Right to restrict processing: means the right to ‘block’ or suppress further use of the information concerning You in certain circumstances. When processing is restricted, we inform you that Almirall can still store your information, but may not use it further.

      Right to data portability: means the right to obtain and reuse personal data by a third party in a structured, commonly used and machine readable format in certain circumstances. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another data controller, this will only take place if it is technically feasible.

      Right to object: means the right to object to certain types of processing, in certain circumstances.

      The exercise of the above referred rights would be applicable in accordance with the technical and organizational particularities of the corresponding data processing performed.

      The lawfulness of the data processing up to your consent withdrawal remains unaffected by the revocation. These rights may be limited in some situations – for example, where we can demonstrate we have a legal requirement to process your personal data.

      If you would like to exercise any of the abovementioned rights, you can send us an electronic request to our address datamanager.global@almirall.com, attaching a copy of your personal ID card/passport. Finally, we inform you that you can contact the Spanish Data Protection Agency or any European supervisory entity for any claim arising from the processing of your personal data. You can find an updated list of such organizations by jurisdiction at https://edpb.europa.eu/about-edpb/about-edpb/members_en

Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising your Rights section below), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your Personal Information from our records, unless an exception applies.

      We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

      • Complete the transaction for which we collected the Personal Information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.

      • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.

      To exercise the access, data portability, deletion rights and others described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by any of the following methods:

      • Filling out the CCPA Data Access Request Form

      • Emailing us at dataprivacyus@almirall.com

      • Only you, or a person that you legally authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your Personal Information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.

      • You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. A verifiable consumer request must:

        • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.

        • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

      • We cannot respond to your request or provide you with Personal Information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the Personal Information relates to you.

      • Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.

      • We will only use Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

    6. Response Timing and Format

      We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.

      Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

      We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

    7. Personal Information Sales Opt-Out and Opt-In Rights

      You have the right to direct us to not sell your Personal Information at any time (the “Right to Opt-Out”). Users who opt-in to Personal Information sales may opt-out of future sales at any time.

      To exercise the Right to Opt-Out, you (or your authorized representative) may submit a request to us at: CCPA Data Access Request Form or to dataprivacyus@almirall.com.

      Once you make an opt-out request, we will wait at least twelve (12) months before asking you to reauthorize Personal Information sales. However, you may change your mind and opt back in to Personal Information sales at any time by contacting Almirall, LLC at the email address or phone number provided in this notice.

      You do not need to create an account with us to exercise your Right to Opt-Out. We will only use Personal Information provided in an opt-out request to review and comply with the request.

    8. Non-Discrimination

      We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights. Unless permitted by law, we will not:

      • Deny you goods or services.

      • Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.

      • Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.

      • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

    9. CALIFORNIA’S SHINE THE LIGHT LAW:

      We do not share your Personal Information with third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes. California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits California residents who have supplied Personal Information, as defined in the statute, to us to, under certain circumstances, request and obtain certain information regarding disclosure, of Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. With any questions about the foregoing, please email us at dataprivacyus@almirall.com.
